Contaminants are a real risk that aren't worth taking for supplements with zero proven benefit. And "the dose makes the poison" is so true. Even things GRAS could be dangerous in a super concentrated form. I'm an oncology pharmacist and LOVE that you wrote this. Some of the most toxic chemotherapy is derived from "natural" sources. You did a great job showing and explaining these risks. Because it is hard for people to understand. And even harder not to get pulled in by all the marketing strategies used by the supplement industry.
